    • Description:
      Violence underpins many public health problems and increases vulnerability to other health problems. Violence against children leads to higher risks of health and social problems, such as chronic disease, HIV, mental health issues, substance abuse, and violence perpetration later in life. The economic impact of violence against children is estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars per year. The right to be free from violence is recognized by the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Furthermore, United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 16.2 calls for ending all forms of violence against children. Many inter-related factors contribute to violence against children. Institutions and sectors must work together to prevent and respond to it. Country-specific data and evidence-based approaches can inform how to best address violence against children at individual, family, community, and society levels. VACS-one-page.pdf
